    What's the ETA on the new arrivals?

    Me.262A-2/U2 Almost OOB 1:48

    Thought someone on the 1/48 forum might know of an obscure resin tanker kit.....But it looks like you are doing just fine without one.

    Me.262A-2/U2 Almost OOB 1:48

    Mike, might it be worth a post on the Missing Lynx 1/48 forum, see if you can dodge the scratch work?

    Soviet armored personnel carrier BTR-60 1/48

    @SleeperService I got a set from this guy on eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Armory-Models-1-48-BTR-60-APC-WHEELS-with-WEIGHTED-TIRES-Resin-Set/382053637345?hash=item58f42bdce1:g:hIkAAOSwHptY-8V- He also has a resin 1/48 KPVT barrel from the same manufacturer (the total for the two is under the £15 limit).

    WW 1 B type bus kit

    I'd be fairly confident that they'll do a 1/35 version in due course.

    Know Your Soviet Tanks?

    How well do you know your Soviet era MBTs?

    French WW1 Pair - FT & CA

    Smashing builds.....Hope you'll be joining the WWI GB with more of the same.

    Sgt.Squarehead's Knackered Nightfighter

    Placemarker for now, but the kit & bits are all ready to go.....SMER kit, lots of extras including a cockpit and an engine, possibly even a small vignette.....Optimistic I know, but I'll give it a go. Kannst du das Reparieren? Nein, es ist g*****t!

    Dates: 30 Dec 2017 to 1 April 2018 Host: Sgt. Squarehead CoHosts: Ozzy & Threadbear Title says it all.....Pretty sure there must be more than a few unbuilt Shemans in stashes out there, why not build them in the company of like minded fellows here on BM? Any vehicle based on any variant of the M3 or M4 Medium Tank chassis is eligible, the wider the variety the better! 1 - Sgt.Squarehead 2 - Arniec 3 - Bonhoff 4 - fatfingers 5 - SleeperService 6 - TrojanThunder 7 - Dazzio 8 - Shermaniac 9 - Ozzy 10 - PlaStix 11 - Joss 12 - Antoine 13 - DaveyGair 14 - badger 15 - Hockeyboy76 16 - TeeELL 17 - AndrewE 18 - JackG 19 - Panzer Vor!!! 20 - AgentG 21 - TonyTiger66 22 - Paul Giles 23 - AndyRM 24 - Bullbasket 25 - DaveJL 26 - 06/24 27 - beefy66 28 - vindicareassassin 29 - softscience 30 - stevej60 31 - Foghorn Leghorn 32 - TEMPESTMK5 33 - Doug Rogers 34 - Dads203 35 - FrancisGL 36 - Badder 37 - Plasto 38 - HL-10 39 - The_Lancaster 40 - Blitz23 41 - Sabre_days 42 - Ade H 43 - bull-nut 44 - Corsairfoxfouruncle 45 - BerndM 46 - Gary 1960 47 - Nigel Heath 48 - Jb65rams 49 - Threadbear 50 - MadNurseGaz 51 - Gav G 52 - Meteors

    M3/M4 Medium Tank STGB Chat

    Cheers guys.....I tried to reply more comprehensively yesterday, but the iPad wasn't having it at all.

    Sgt.Squarehead's Knackered Nightfighter

    It's not looking good right now.....Will probably know more tomorrow.

    M3/M4 Medium Tank STGB Chat

    Not half as sorry as me, believe me.....Replacing it is going to skint me completely, I'm looking at a two grand hole in my budget at the absolute minimum (and I will have to switch to Win10).

    M3/M4 Medium Tank STGB Chat

    My p00ter has died.
  14. "So, where are we?" Black primer does this picture no favours really! This is pretty much the full extent of my work on the Mitchell Gunship to date, I've modified some figures, added some greeblies to the barren, superbly fitting (& utterly fictional) cockpit, oh and I've glued the wing halves together.....It's a pretty simple kit but I'd still hope this will be deemed less than 25%? PS - Just discovered I have also assembled the engines (four whole parts) and painted them a vaguely enginey colour too.

    Mil Mi-24 Hind - Revell 1/72

    Cheers @71chally I'm almost tempted by two now, the Mi-35 makes better sense for me as it has fixed gear, but it's the Afghan era gunships that I truly love, especially the insanely over-armed Mi-24P.

    Mil Mi-24 Hind - Revell 1/72

    Cheers Ced.....Reckon I might add a Zvezda boxing to the stash at some point. Does the Eduard kit have Zvezda plastic too?
  19. Sgt.Squarehead

    Modelcollect have arrived at BlackMike Models

    Cheers Duncan.....I'm not convinced the Master Level kits for these two have ever been released, if Henk hasn't seen them, nobody has. So I reckon I'll wait for a while and see what develops. I'm supposed to be making Mitchell bits, but I keep getting Modelcollect kits out instead, then I have to force myself to put them away again.

    Mil Mi-24 Hind - Revell 1/72

    Those pods did look a bit pants Ced, you really had to try something. What's your overall 'feeling' for this kit please.....Fun? Fiddly? Fekkit!? I'm kind of tempted to get one.....I really do like mid-late production Hinds, I'm massively interested in the Soviet-Afghan war and it is basically a light-tank with rotors, all of which qualify valid justifcations in my book.

    Now you're talking!

    Albatross, Get Your Albatross Here!

    Might it not be easier to sort out the taper of the nacelles before detaiing the wing?
  23. Sgt.Squarehead

    Modelcollect have arrived at BlackMike Models

    I could nominate a candidate or two more yet too. The kits I've posted to date are just base-line Modellcollect, apparently they do really detailed ones too.....I'm particularly interested to know what the score with this pair is: I've not yet seen either for sale, or even a review.....They're listed as future releases at Henk's site, but out of stock at MC's own site.....If they really do have a full interior (as it says on their boxes), I really, really want them! I could live with the base-line kits (#UA72012 & #UA72004), but I'd much rather have the Master Level if they are as described and available.
  24. Sgt.Squarehead

    Mil Mi-24 Hind - Revell 1/72

    I don't get the fancy markings on Hinds thing at all.....This is possibly the only machine in the entire universe that looks less evil when you paint Giger bio-mech on it. You just know that thing wants to kill you!
